The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host a webinar discussing California’s Assembly Bill 262 and 1827, more commonly known as Buy Clean California.

This legislation requires facility-specific Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for flat glass and other selected products. John Jewell, senior consultant at thinkstep, will lead this complimentary webinar taking place at 11:30 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday, March 26. Register now for “California’s AB 262: Their Law Requiring EPDs.”

California’s Department of General Services (DGS) is currently creating a methodology for interpreting the law, which state agencies must use in their bid review. This webinar will review the proposed methodology and its implications for producers of flat and finished glass.

“The law requires contractors bidding on state infrastructure and construction projects to disclose the greenhouse gas emissions for flat glass used in those projects,” said Jewell. To this end, all greenhouse gas emissions must be lower than a threshold defined as part of the DGS methodology. Learn more about these requirements during this presentation, which is open to the public.
